Campus Champion

Two years ago, senior biology major Kaleb Frierson read about the impact climate change has on humans and focused his career goals on public health. “Ultimately I want to be an emergency physician at a hospital where I can teach, research and practice medicine.” He’s well on his way — in 2022 he earned Outstanding Undergraduate Research in Biological Sciences, received a summer research fellowship and serves as a teaching assistant and supplemental instructor. A presenter and a published author, teaching enables Kaleb to reflect on his own understanding. The SUNY Cortland Emergency Medical Services club president also manages to be a full-time EMT for Skaneateles/Marcellus Ambulance. An amazing resume of leadership, service, honors and fellowships ensures a bright future for this Campus Champion.
